Active Military and Veterans

Snohomish County Republican Women’s Club is committed to supporting our troops on the ground in combat.  Every meeting we collect donations from the club members to purchase needed items and treats for our men and women.  Joyce Damon who has been involved in this “ministry” has made it her mission to make sure these men and women receive some comforts from home.  God Bless our men and women in uniform.

Our members are very generous when it comes to our active military serving overseas; each month several members bring food and toiletry items for Joyce to pack up and send to an elite group of Navy Seals serving in the Middle East. At each meeting, we pass the basket to help offset the costs of mailing these boxes.

Some of the items most requested by our troops are:

  • trail mix                            
  • nuts
  • power bars
  • cookies
  • shampoo
  • soap
  • shaving items (no aerosol)
  • deodorant
  • foot powder
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • spicy snacks
  • bouillon cubes
  • drink mixes
  • coffee
  • peanut butter
  • salsa
  • pasta and sauce
  • canned meat
  • pancake mix
  • syrup
  • hot chocolate (winter time)
  • otter pops (summer time)Our troops also like getting patriotic decorations, flags, and lights, especially for the holidays.
  • And, of course, money – it costs $17.35 to mail one box (12″x12″x6″).
